Jonny Miller was recently cast as former Prime Minister John Major.

Creator Peter Morgan will conclude the historical drama with season 6, with executive producer Suzanne Mackie explaining that he can't write anything without a period of time to reflect and develop perspective on past events.

'Peter has said it very articulately, that he simply can't write something unless there has been time to gain a proper perspective,' she told Broadcast. 'I think he's always felt 10 years is the minimum amount of time that he can see something in a historical context, to allow him to really understand it.

'I don't think he'll deviate from that. We all know these stories, but what Peter does so brilliantly is get underneath that and understand the landscape in a more nuanced, complex, surprising way.'

The Crown seasons 1 - 4 are available to stream now on Netflix.
